Galatians 5:1-11 Corkscrews, Building Blocks, and Practicing the Discipline of Freedom…

Many of us grew up thinking that a big part of being a Christian was being moral - obeying God's laws and trying to live a good, godly life. Then how can Paul say that living under the law actually leads to bondage and being cut off from God ? ! People have all kinds of theories about human nature and God's will, but most of them simply don't match what we actually see and experience in real life. Today Paul gives us realistic image of human behavior and what true freedom looks like. It turns out that it takes effort to hold on to your freedom and it is easy to drift away from it. We tend to drift away in one of two directions - either towards self-indulgent sins or towards self-righteous rule keeping - both of which end up in bondage. Today we look at one of the most amazing scriptures we have for understanding the promise of the gospel - Galatians 5:1 - "It was for freedom that Christ set you free..." Come join us on a journey that begins with the best cork screw ever invented and ends with a picture of your relationship with God that could change the way you think about the way you do your life.
